Maybin OLB Penn State #59
|Good overall athleticism. An elite
pass rusher. Has the speed and the quickness to blow past slower offensive lineman.
Should be a very effective pass-rush specialist at the next level. A high-character
guy; a hard worker that has steadily improved throughout his short career. |
|Played defensive end
at Penn State but likely will be forced to play linebacker at the next level.
Very raw; doesn't have the array of pass rush moves to excel against more athletic,
experienced offensive linemen in the NFL. Struggles against the run; can be pushed
around by physical run-blockers. Tackling skills are lacking; doesn't always wrap
up the ball carrier. |
|Maybin isn't ready
to be an every-down player in the NFL, which made his entry into the NFL draft
after his sophomore season somewhat surprising. He reminds me of a taller version
of former Louisville standout Elvis Dumervil. Maybin could be an instant impact
player as a situational pass-rusher, but he either needs to bulk up in order to
remain at defensive end or spend time learning the outside-linebacker position.
Based on potential he could be a first round selection, but he is certainly a
boom-or-bust prospect. |
